Birds Artist Statement

< Return to Writing Menu


I believe when I focus on groups of birds, I can express a relationship that reflects some human condition. The Composition suggest parts of a whole natural environment. I often sit quietly at the waterfront of my cottage, with a beer, book or sketchpad. In a busy world, the stillness I experience is a gift. Suddenly, wonderful birds present themselves, singly, in pairs or in family groups. Loons, ducks, herons and songbirds are most common along the lakeshore. I try to imagine a time of year or an environment that suits each breed. I like to combine similar species that suggest a sense of sharing or co-operation.
